I always thought that when we handed over Hong Kong in '97 that that would be the end of the place. It seems to be that it went the other way round. China has become more like Hong Kong. Do you know, the Chinese were not expecting to get the island. It was a complete surprise to them. The 99 year lease was only on the New Territories which are on the mainland.



Hmmm.
That is weird.
Had you all known, you could have just kept it!!

Well, it makes sense then.
The powers that be, who had to swop it over, probably knew then, and just left it alone!
